For generations, kids have been learning through play. Our legacy is to nurture their growth and help them reach their greatest potential.

Play. Learn. Grow. Support: A life cycle among children who visit the Museum and the adults who wisely bring them here. While we play, we learn; as we learn, we grow; and as we grow, we are supportive.

That’s why we want you to be invigorated by, involved with, and invested in helping Please Touch Museum® grow and thrive.

Support the Legacy of Play campaign and help generations of kids learn.
